We are parents and grandparents to our granddaughter since she was 6 months old, she is now 15, it has been hard at times but boy have we had lots of fun. We feel it a privillege to have had this experience late in life.

Well done, janEP! I have had the great happiness of having a late child after my first two had grown up.
